Top Secret

Take the tour to the Mendihuaca waterfalls where you can absorb the health-boosting energy of the glacial waters, and where owner Allan has discovered a secret of the falls – an air pocket where visitors can submerge themselves and experience an unforgettable natural massage.

Origins

Having left behind the stresses of city life, owner and service maestro Allan decided to build his own vision of healthy and sustainable living by the Palomino riverbank. Now he and his team are focused on bringing guests an authentic immersion into total relaxation and embracing the local physical and human environment.

The Review

Emerging from the winding track that leads away from the laidback town of Palomino, Reserva One Love rests within the lush valleys of the Sierra Nevada. An open lawn allows guests to drink in the immense untamed surroundings, forming the natural canvas upon which this truly unique experience has been created.

The 150-acre private reserve allows guests a sublime proximity to the rainforest and an unrivalled sense of privacy. The charming palapa-thatched huts set out across the hill are inspired by the architecture of the local indigenous cultures, and offer a tranquil space to rest, relax and reconnect with nature. Found within are all the technological luxuries to ensure maximum comfort, with a sustainable and harmonizing design in mind.

In the heart of the reserve, palm roofs, gorgeous ethically-sourced woods and a set of friendly and attentive staff await any need or request. One Love rightly prides itself on the amazing food created in its open kitchen. Local ingredients, including a fabulous array of organic produce grown within the property’s gardens, are mixed with imagination, nutrition and culinary inspiration from around the world.

Tour de force owner and manager Allan brings his own inimitable style of hospitality; an encyclopaedia of indigenous culture, an instrumental part of the flawless service and a source of a refreshing philosophy on living well. Guests are made to feel instantly at home, and with a wide array of spa treatments, adventurous excursions and ample opportunity to kick back and enjoy the peace of the rainforest, One Love has something all guests can marvel at.
